We simply cannot get enough of this rainbow wedding! Complete with all the funky vibes and super colourful styling, Cara and Adam truly made this day a celebration of their love for one another. Being an artist herself, Cara spent over a year folding origami flowers in bed every night (we LOVE the dedication), and made cordials from the fruit in their garden. Wanting the day to be as chilled and relaxed as possible, they ensured the day was carefree and spent it surrounded by friends and family, with plenty of laughter and food! Complete with scones and cream on the lawn, an alfresco courtyard meal, ice cream cart, retro drinks caravan, and photo booth (phew!), we seriously cannot think of anything more you could want during your special day.
What Made Our Day Unique
Our Family and friends and their help and love. We had some major setbacks the day before (both bride and groom disappeared) and all our friends and family made it real. It was more than we could have expected and was completely and totally incredible. Thank-yous do not suffice. We both struggle sometimes to ask for help, so the support floored us. Everyone contributed something and it was so special to have all the people we love together. Whilst our marriage is about the two of us, our wedding day was about our network and community of people we love.
As much as we love a modern colour scheme, we absolutely love it when a couple goes all out! After all, your wedding day is truly a celebration, so why not showcase it through vibrant styling? Cara and Adam went all out with their decor, and honestly, you only need to look at the pictures to see what an incredibly bright and colourful day it was. So, if you’re feeling a little brave, then why not whack out the rainbow colours… after all it’s your day, your way - never forget it.
Inspiration & Styling
Adam was a carpenter and Cara’s an artist, so colourful, relaxed and eclectic was what we wanted. Eating, drinking and laughing was key for us and we really wanted our daughter and nephews to be at the centre and for them to have fun. LOADS was handmade. We folded trippy, origami paper flowers in bed every night for over a year and Cara made cordials with fruit from our garden. Our family and friends tore fabric from big rolls to hang the bunting in the trees. Two of our friends made us a kaleidoscope photo booth, which was heartbreakingly beautiful.
Adam’s kidneys had failed and he had only just stayed out of the hospital. So, saying our vows in the hut in the woods and being able to be there in the moment together, with everyone we wanted there, was magical. Eating together in the bright sunshine was also blissful, like the best summer holidays of childhood combined. Everyone was laughing and in the tough times since, the memories of everyone being carefree and together has been everything. Our five-year-old nephew gave a breathtaking impromptu speech too, which was beautiful and the source of many tears.
